and ron reagan, an msnbc political analyst joining me. i want to start with ron. why would they want to change the electoral state like pennsylvania? why would they do that? >> well, i think the republicans have examined the playing field as it were and through long and bitter experience they have come to the conclusion that is it is very difficult for them to win on a national level unless they cheat. so they are going to cheat any way that they can. we saw it in the vote suppression. that didn't work out so well. so let's just change systemically the way we change the votes and in states like pennsylvania, ohio, michigan, florida, like that, these are the battleground states that we need to win and we're narrowly losing them now so let's at least try to get some of the electoral college votes out of this and tip the election. >> ron, you know why he's with him? it's not about the voter suppression. the 60 some counties that always go republican, they can't stand the fact that philadelphia and pittsburgh, large urban population -- minority populations, they just can't stand that fac

, pst we also have ron reagan. you have the rye sense to go with this. why would they want to change the electoral count? why would they go against a block vote? why would they do that? i think the republicans have examined the playing field as it were and long and bitter experience, they have come to the conclusion that it's very difficult for them to win on a national level, unless they cheat. so they are going to cheat any way they can. e we saw it with the voter suppression efforts. let's just change how we count the votes and in states like pennsylvania, ohio, florida, states like that, these are the battleground states that we need to win and we're narrowly losing them now so let's get some of the electoral college and maybe it tips the election. >> i'm with ron before i even know i'm with him. it is about voter suppression. the counties that always go republican, they can't stand the fact that philadelphia has the population. they can't stand that fact that that effects the statewide results. >> it would benefit the republicans. a lot of minorities we like to cut them off. the

7 news. >> nick, thank you. >>> the bay ron highway in contra costa -- the byron highway is in contra costa is back open after an accident that killed two people including a young boy. sky heavy hd flew over the scene. witnesses say the driver of an 88 oldsmobile swerved across the yellow line and then smashed into the big rig. the boy believed to be between 8 and 9 years old died at the scene. the driver, a 21-year-old woman from bay point died at the hospital. >>> the supreme court today announced it will take up two same-sex marriage cases including proposition 8. it was approved by voters in 2008 and it banned same sex marriage as you know. the justices will also take up the 1996 defensive marriage act which withholds federal recognition and spousal benefits for gay couples. some people hope for the right to marry while other say states rights will trump washington. >> i have been waiting to enjoy the same privilege. >> the constitution of the united states doesn't have marriage in it. and the 10th amendment says what is not in the federal powers belongs to the states
. >> [speaker not understood]. >>> good afternoon, chairman nolan, members of the board. i happened to catch ron owens this morning. he had a discussion about this topic on his radio show and people called in and people said, hey, i'm going to go shop elsewhere. yeah. you might gain a few bucks from the meters on sundays, but you're going to lose a lot of taxpayer money -- sales tax money from people deciding to shop elsewhere. i'm thinking we need to have a color sticker that says operating sundays on the meters because the letters are going to start coming to the editorial pages saying what happened. they didn't know. even though you're going to do outreach, you're still going to have a lot of people who don't know. if you don't do it -- at least have television coverage and radio coverage and big-page ads in the newspapers, you're not going to be able to cover everybody. but the thing is people are going to -- once they get that whopping $75 ticket or whatever, they're going to decide they're not going to shop in san francisco. you're trying to get people to take public transit. they're not g
for public comment. are there members of the public who wish to speak on item number 12? >>> yes, ron rubina. i just asked mr. kim if a little radio device would work in the bus shelters where they have, you know, number 22 arriving 50 minutes. he said yes. so, i wonder if not in this project, in some project, and if not with this money, some of that big emergency management money, you could put in at least the most used lines in some of the shelters emergency giants crowd bus arriving in 7 hours or bus broke down. i hope you'll get some of these little radio receivers in the shelters on the most used lines so people will know the bus is delayed. thank you. >> thank you. are there other members of the public who wish to speak on item 12? seeing none, public comment is closed. colleagues, do we have a motion to approve the requested release of 1.6 million on reserve for the sfmta radio program? >> do we have to first motion to approve the amendments as recommended by the budget analyst? >> and to also accept the budget analyst recommendations. we have a notion to do that. and can we do that w
or bare ron yes yes, you'd be hard pressed to find a person less ready to be involved in negotiations. anyone who reads here understands this. >> i mentioned -- that's just the structure that has evolved to deal with the issue, and the europeans -- the foreign minister of the european union takes that position as representing the european union, and other countries are represented. ordinarily by political directors. they don't have to be but that's how the issue evolved. so some of these strictures are continuity. they evolve and persist. who comes into that and the personalities that come to that are the function of those particular organizations. in that's case it's the european union. we tend to focus on who is on the other side of the table, the british representative or the american representative. the problem with the p-5, is who is on the other side of the table. these negotiations are stalemated, not because lady ashton because -- because of this limitation and because of the approach they have had on these issues. i think the stalemate of these conversations should be directe
for the littoral valley. gene cernan, harrison jack schmitt and ron evans aboard. apollo 17 launched at night, and when they landed three days later, the sun was behind them. and so that particular launch trajectory put a fully formed beautifully lit earth in the window of the command module at a time when the astronauts really should have been too busy to look at it. here is how al reinert, who co-wrote the movie "apollo 13" describes what happened. quote, at five hours and a few minutes into the flight of apollo 17, one of the crewmen looked out the window. what he saw inspired him to grab the only camera that wasn't stowed and snap a picture. but whoever did it said nothing on the radio or to their crewmates about it. it is possible they did it instinctively, hardly ever thinking about it because none of them thought to mention it for weeks. reinert doesn't say which of the three took the picture, partly because nasa gives all three credit for it, and partly because none of them were supposed to be taking pictures right then. today nbc veteran space correspondent jay barbree got gene cerna
boehner calling the white house fiscal plan a joke. senator ron johnson is on the budget committee. he joins us. good evening, sir. >> greta, how you doing? >> greta: very well, and calling the plan a joke, i guess he is not going to beat around the bush for us. >> unfortunately, greta, president obama pretty well holds all the cards in this negotiation. if he wants to have tax increases or tax rates go up, i don't see how republicans can stop him, you know, because everybody's taxes are going to increase if congress does nothing, and president obama is the only person that can sign a bill into law and quite honestly, senator harry reid is the only person in the senate that can pass a bill in the senate as well. it sounds like people like howard dean want everybody's taxes to go up. maybe we should feel fortunate that president obama only wants the top two% to g two percent t. >> greta: do you anticipate republicans will vote for a rate increase if this should come to a vote? >> i don't believe they'll vote for a rate increase. what we'll vote for hopefully is to extend the current tax
in addition to two other kinds of drugs. use went down. ron paul, of all people, made an interesting point that one of the presidential debates, it is not the law that's preventing you from doing this. we need a law to tell us whatnot to do. if you go he to college, you are going to be exposed to pot without a cop in the room. it is going to happen. you might inhale. you didn't. other people did. it's just going to happen. that's not the thing that's stopping you from doing that. removing that law is not going to, i dent think, cause a flood of people to come in. if they do, it is a drug that is incredibly less dangerous than a drug including alcohol. >> there is a former prohibition on alcohol, it occurs from 18-21 when you are old enough to serve your country or vote but you are not allowed to drink. we know that that is also when, in those years, we are likely to see the most abuse, when young people are kind of underground with it. we have that example right here. >> i think this comparison to alcohol is probably the best place to come to in this whole discussion of illegal drugs in th
on video. ron has done that also in print. thank you very much. >> allyson schwartz of pennsylvania talked about the fiscal cliff and other democrats and republicans will reach a compromise before the deadline and other issues on the agenda. this is 45 minutes. >> thank you. let me introduce the moderator of the program. he is the editorial director of national journal and the atlantic. he oversees the political coverage coming out of our company. he is regularly on cnn and major cable networks. he is the most astute analyst in washington political analyst. we have had changes in the program. jean could not at the last minute make it today. apparently there is a meeting going on right now. maybe it is productive. maybe not. but we do have congresswoman allyson schwartz from pennsylvania who served on the ways and means committee in the house and now the budget committee. she has become a really big deal. we are happy to have you with us. >> thank you. jean was some of the way for a meeting which may or may not be good news on the fiscal cliff. i am hoping this is a little less than the pan
